   Proposed Foreign-Trade Zone -- Brown County, WI (Green Bay Port of 
Entry); Application and Public Hearing 
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board
(the Board) by Brown County, Wisconsin, requesting authority to establish a 
general-purpose foreign-trade zone on a site encompassing the Austin 
Straubel Airport and two surrounding parcels (2,364 acres). The site 
includes land in the village of Ashwaubenon, the Town of Hobart and the 
reservation of the Oneida Tribe of Indians in Wisconsin in Brown County, 
within the Green Bay Customs port of entry. The application was submitted 
pursuant to the provisions of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 
U.S.C. 81a-81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR Part 400). It was 
formally filed on April 14, 1989. Brown County is authorized to make this 
application pursuant to secton 182.50 of the 1985-86 Wisconsin Statutes. 
   The proposed zone would consist of three parcels: Parcel A (60 acres) is 
located at South Point Road and Airport Road, Ashwaubenon, and is owned by 
the County and the Oneida Indian Tribe; Parcel B (1,654 acres) consists of 
the county-owned Airport facility located in Ashwaubenon and Hobart; and, 
Parcel C (650 acres), also located in Ashwaubenon and Hobart, includes the 
Ashwaubenon Industrial Park at Adam Drive and Ridge Road, part of which is 
owned by the Village of Ashwaubenon. 
   The application contains evidence of the need for zone services in the 
Green Bay area. Several firms have indicated an interest in using zone 
procedures for warehousing/distribution activity, including glassware, auto 
parts, machinery and marine equipment. Specific manufacturing approvals are 
not being sought at this time. Such requests would be made to the Board on 
a case-by-case basis.  
   In accordance with the Board's regulations, an examiners committee has 
been appointed to investigate the application and report to the Board. The 
committee consists of: John J. Da Ponte, Jr., (Chairman), Director, 
Foreign-Trade Zones Staff, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, DC 
20230; Richard Rudin, District Director, U.S. Customs Service, North 
Central Region, 517 E. Wisconsin Avenue, Room 554, Milwaukee, Wisconsin 
53202; and Colonel John D. Glass, District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer 
District, Detroit, P.O. Box 1027, Detroit, Michigan 48231-1027. 
   As part of its investigation, the examiners committee will hold a public 
hearing on May 17, 1989, beginning at 9 a.m., in the Brown County Board 
Chambers, Room 203, Green Bay City Hall, 100 North Jefferson Street, Green 
Bay, WI 54301. 
   Interested parties are invited to present their views at the hearing.

in accordance with the Board's regulations to the examiners committee, care
